Heather Profile Pic
Heather comes to UUSM with a lifelong connection with Unitarian Universalism. She has a strong background as a UU religious educator and was awarded the Jenella Hanson award for excellence in her field in 2014 by the UUA. She has over a decade of experience in religious education and a passion for building teen programs that extend beyond local church walls. Heather has served as the president of the Pacific Central Chapter of the Liberal Religious Educators Association. Heather is deeply drawn toward guiding Unitarian Universalists and growing the UU faith.  

Heather’s UU roots were established early by her grandfather, Ken Gjemre, who served as a motivating force that guided her as a child with a deep love for Unitarian Universalist values. Ken founded Half Price Books to provide all students with affordable access to educational resources and traveled around the world championing human rights. She is supported by her family who shares our UU common values and including husband, Craig, and her three grown children Kayla, a recent UCSC Ecology graduate, Corinne, a Biology student, and Cole, a recent high school graduate studying to be firefighter/paramedic. Heather’s life purpose is to help guide young people to be the change in the world and make a difference in a positive UU way.
